TREATING DIGESTIVE ISSUES WITH ACUPUNCTURE
Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to treat many chronic conditions of the digestive tract. Patients come to us most often because Western Medicine is not very effective at treating digestive problems.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine are known for effectively treating:
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS
- Functional Dyspepsia
- Peptic ulcers
- Lactose intolerance
- Gastrointestinal tract bleeding
- Inflammatory conditions
- Hiatal hernia syndrome
- Bacterial infections
Chinese Medicine seeks out what we consider to be the causes of the problem and treats the root cause, rather than the symptoms of the disease.
Typical causes of digestive issues as detected by Chinese Medicine are heat or inflammation of the large or small intestines, emotional disturbances such as depression affecting the digestive system, or liver inflammation affecting the digestive system. Recovery time is usually one month of treatment for every year you have had the problem.
